I was invited to dinner at Bottega Berta by some friends who visit regularly and who had raved about it... They were completely correct with their description. We had a lovely evening and I will definitely return. It is a VERY small restaurant with a small menu, BUT what it lacks in quantity it certainly makes up for in quality.... More

This is a great cosy place with excellent food. I had venison with spätzle, perhaps the least Italian item on t menu, and it was delicious. The tiramisù was also nice although it didn't stand out as much. The service was quick, the waiter was very nice and friendly. Prices in line with restaurants in Zurich (so if you come... More
